The Navy, It's not just a job

Recommended Posts

The recruiter offered us training that we could use - skills for life I believe he called it. Here's the video proof, telling it like it was for a new seaman just out of bootcamp circa 1975 - messcranking, workparties, chipping paint, compartment cleaning......all the skills you needed for civilian life after your enlistment was up.

 

Navy, it's not just a job.....

 

The adventure came later when you finally earned your crows.

Thanks for finding that: I have not seen that in years. That originally ran on Saturday Night Live in the 1978.

 

I love that closing line.

Replaced the old link, you may have to turn up the volume on this 1979 SNL commercial

 

Datelined in Bayonne, New Jersey, this 1979 parody of the Navy’s commercial – “It’s not just a job. It’s an adventure.” — features sailors at work.
